Excellent trip, excellent service, our tour guide Miguel Angel was such a nice person the whole time, I would totally recommend him and Guatemalan Adventure anytime.

This was a fantastic tour with a wonderful guide. I had so many great experiences on this tour like riding the small tut tut vehicles, taking the boat to the other small town, visiting the large Catholic Church built in 1549, visiting the Idol of Mayans, eating a great meal and seeing how the people live and work. This tour is magnificent and my guide, Hiemi was the best.

Absolutely beautiful but the boat ride back was very rocky. Mirko was a fantastic guide.

Spectacular! We loved this trip - the lake is magnificent, the landscape serene, and our guide Michael-Angelo (he guided us for 2 days) is second to no other! We were there in Sept 2014 - the weather was perfect, we walked around in t-shirts, shorts and hiking shoes. We carried a weather proof jacket (it can get cold on the boat and some spray at the bow; and the wind and rain is likely to pick up in the afternoon). Santiago Atitlin is unique - a whole town preserved in its own culture. Whilst walking through markets the lives, colours, aromas and vibrocity of this town touch your senses.

My husband and I were the only ones booked on this tour, most tour operators would have cancelled, not Viator they sent a car with a driver. We had a great time this man (sorry his name escapes me at the moment) went out of his way to give us such a great day. MY husband is from Guatemala however he learnt a lot about his country on this trip. We will never forget all the kindness shown to us.

Good trip, overall. Be sure to take photos from a vista point of lake and mountains before you get to the lake because later the volcanoes are covered by clouds. Our guide, Armando, gave us a lot of information and kept us engaged. The village at Santiago de Atitlan is interesting. Some uphill walking. Couple of nice coffee shops. Do bargain when buying local handicrafts. A local painter Nicolas de Reande and his family have a small gallery. Interesting paintings. Lunch at Panajachel can be a challenge. Try to stay away from Cassablanca restaurant. Perhaps, Atlantis maybe a better bet.

We were picked up promptly at 7AM at our hotel in Guatemala City. The van ride took about 3 hours to arrive at Panajachel with a rest stop half way there. We crossed Lake Atitlan and took a tour of Santiago. Santiago is very interesting with the Mayan markets and street vendors selling all types of local handcrafts. Our guide explained the interesting combination of Mayan and Catholic religion. I found this fascinating. We headed back across the lake which was very choppy. (Hint) sit in the back of the boat if you can, I was drenched by the time we got back.

Lake Atitlan is beautiful. The surrounding towns are very Mayan and so interesting. I've been to many Latin American countries. Guatemala, with its strong Mayan culture still so intact, I very worth seeing.

Beautiful place, Nice trip.
The only thing was that the driver was really unsafe in driving. We didn't feel comfortable in the car with him.
